In this class of dental x-rays, the image is taken inside the patient's mouth. They are mainly used to identify cases of interproximal cavities (between the patient's teeth) or problems in the roots of the teeth.  They are divided into:

  • Periapical X-rays: These are usually used to obtain a complete image of the structure of one or two teeth: roots and crowns.

  • Fin / bite or occlusal X-ray: The plate is placed along the patient's bite, to obtain a complete image of the patient's dental crowns. They are used especially in cases of interproximal caries.
